A new poll commissioned by Black Entertainment Television (BET) founder Bob Johnson and conducted by Zogby showed that 55 percent of African-American adults do not agree with the LGBT communitys claim that gay rights are the same as civil rights for blacks.

That is astonishingly low!
There is life out there!
It’s BET. They’re probably on the D.L., y’know . . .
Your Oresident and Courts are about to make it so. Chew on that.
I sometimes wonder if a poll were taken, how many people would vote 2 + 2 = 22, only to be slightly overcome by those who think it equals 4.
They are right but its all a bunch of bullshit now
Should a stopped with voting rights only
Not a damn step further
Gay crap grew straight out the civil rights manure pile of legislation so many GOPe love to crow about today
There is also a difference between blacks and Hispanics, Hispanics and Asians, Asians and Arabs. But white Democrats see them as one big monolithic plantation.
Shut your mouth!
Recreational choices are on par with human rights.
But not the philosophical / spiritual choices.
Zogby, talk about a discredited polling firm. In this case number is not surprising. The gay marriage ballot measures that all lost prior to last cycle was being held back in many cases by African Americans. Since Obama evolved on the issue though many AA’s have also begun to say it is ok now. So many do not believe it is civil rights but it does not really matter because the largest swing demographics in the last year has been AA’s and they are now for it and picking up supporters everyday.
This is a done deal. Even if court does not rule on equal protection this time they will have no choice but to take a case within 2 years and will have to rule. I think if forced Kennedy for sure is a yes and Roberts at that point may join.
What worries me most of all accepting this will be the law of the land soon this could be a wedge issue in the mid terms. You know republicans hate everyone and everything. With this issue up front it will be pushed. Polling shows it has does resonate.
Since it is only a matter of time might be better if courts rule against republicans to get the issue off the table. I know fight to the end but I see no way this will not eventually be law of the land.
You wouldn’t know that from their voting records.
> That is astonishingly low!
Behavior is NOT ancestry.
The public schools, the universities, and the “news” and entertainment media have done an amazing job of transforming thinking people into idiots.

> eventually be law of the land.
It does not matter.
I will not vote for anyone who supports this.
I will leave the slot blank or write-in somebody whose worldview is more congruent with mine.
Anybody who does not believe that this will bring religious persecution has not seen what has happened in the Netherlands and Canada, where preachers have been fined and jailed for preaching the Word of God.
You cannot preach the Gospel unless you can identify SIN.
As Billy Graham said, before you can get anybody saved, you have to get them lost first.
“That is astonishingly low!”
Exactly my reaction when I read that...”ONLY 55%!?”
From what I’ve read over time I’d say it’s much more than that.
Honesty requires that one acknowledge the part that the overthrow of traditional sexual mores has played. In my lifetime, I have seen heterosexual fornication go from being something shameful that was whispered about and, at least in public, confined to Hollywood. Today, THAT perversion is the "new normal."
"If it feels good, do it" is probably Satan's greatest triumph.
They had better be careful with stating their opinions....democRATs have a nasty habit of putting burning crosses up in black folks yards that try to jump off of the plantation.
What about the other 45%??
